Police Warn of Scam

A police agency in southern Dutchess County is investigating an incident in which two males from an unknown sealing company approached an elderly homeowner with an offer to seal his driveway cheaply because they had extra product. While completing the work, one of the men attempted to distract the homeowner several times; both men also asked to use the bathroom or wash their hands and were let into the house. After the men left, the homeowner noticed a large sum of money missing from the living room. The men were described as being white or Hispanic, one about 35 years old and the other in his 20s.

City of Poughkeepsie Police want the public to be aware of such scams so that they can avoid becoming victims. Residents can report suspicious activity by calling city police at (845) 451-4000.
